  • The Second Mayflower: I’ve heard Kevin Swanson speak countless times at conferences and have loved all his talks. So, I’ve been slowly making my way through his books. This book took a bit of time to finish due to the fact that his talks and this book are just about the same. Basically there really wasn’t anything new in this book for me, but I’m including it in this month’s favorites as it contains very insightful material. If you are concerned about the direction America is headed, wonder how it all came to be this way, and want to do your part to turn the tide, this is a great book to read.
  • In the Secret Service: This was an interesting read about one of the Secret Service men who was present at the assassination attempt of Ronald Reagan. It tells his story in full and gives a great inside look at what it takes to be a Secret Service agent.
  • Chess: From First Moves to Checkmate: Believe it or not, I’m in my mid-twenties I do not know how to play chess. Not something I’m particularly proud about, which is why I read this book. I found it to be very easy to understand and quite informative. Whether you are looking to learn chess or just want to increase your skills, this would be a great read.
  • Twelve Unlikely Heroes: It’s not often that a book makes it to my favorite list or stays on my shelf just because of one chapter, but this one did. While I enjoyed the whole book, the chapter on Jonathan was just wow!! I have always enjoyed reading about the friendship David and Jonathan shared, but this book put it in a whole new light and made it all the more precious. I just may have cried a little at the incredible example of godliness and faithfulness exemplified by Jonathan. If you ever get the chance, read this chapter, even if you can’t read the whole book.
